Volkswagen Golf Service & Repair Manual: Mounting tyre, wheels without and with tyre pressure monitoring

Volkswagen Golf Service & Repair Manual / Wheels and Tyres Guide - General Information / Fitting tyre / Mounting tyre / Mounting tyre, wheels without and with tyre pressure monitoring

Only trained personnel may perform any assembly work on run-flat tyres.
If fitted, check tyre pressure sensor using vehicle diagnostic tester, and renew it as necessary.
–  Ensure proper assembly temperature for tyres → Chapter.
  Note
The tyre pressure sensor (if fitted) must not come into contact with water or be blown upon with compressed air when the wheel rim is cleaned.
If bonded wheel trims are fitted, treat them with great care. The surface is susceptible to scratches.
If the wheel trim is damaged, renew wheel rim.
–  Clean rim.
–  Insert new tyre valve using valve fitting tool -VAS 6459-.
–  Liberally apply tyre assembly paste to wheel rim flanges, tyre beads and inner side of the upper tyre beads.
–  Place tyres with inner side facing downwards onto wheel rim.
   
–  Turn wheel rim, until tyre valve or tyre pressure sensor are positioned opposite to assembly head.
–  Press tyre between tyre valve with tyre pressure sensor and assembly head in -direction of arrow- into well base.
–  Run tyre fitting unit clockwise until assembly head is positioned before tyre valve or tyre pressure sensor. The lower tyre bead will now slide over the wheel flange.
–  Turn wheel rim, until tyre valve or tyre pressure sensor are positioned opposite to assembly head.
–  Run tyre fitting unit clockwise until assembly head is positioned before tyre valve or tyre pressure sensor. The upper tyre bead will now slide over the wheel flange.
  Caution
Risk of damage to wheel rim and tyre due to excessive bead seating pressure.
Never set the bead seating pressure above 3.3 bar.
–  Fill tyres to a maximum tyre pressure of 3.3 bar (bead seating pressure).
–  When the tyre bead does not lie completely against the wheel rim flange: deflate the tyre, press tyre bead off wheel rim flange and generously coat again with tyre assembly paste.
–  If the tyre beads are seated perfectly against the shoulder of the wheel rim, increase pressure to 4 bar.
–  If the tyre beads are not completely seated against the shoulder of the wheel rim, press off tyre → Chapter, and install it again.
–  Screw in valve insert.
–  Inflate tyre until specified tyre pressure is attained.
–  Balance wheel → Chapter.
  Note
Avoid any severe braking and acceleration manoeuvres for the first 100 or 200 km driven. Otherwise, the tyres may turn on the wheel rim due to the tyre assembly paste.
